What is Periodontal Disease?

It is an infection that inflames the soft tissues around the teeth (gums) and destroys the supporting bone around the teeth.

Unhealthy gums are a red flag, warning of possible future tooth loss. A periodontal assessment and early diagnosis is one of the most important things you can do for yourself and your family.

If you have swollen, bleeding gums, you have periodontal “gum” disease. The sooner you can eliminate this menace from your mouth, the better. Left untreated, gum disease can cause serious loss of teeth and bone, and it has recently been linked to a possible increased risk for heart attack & stroke.

Fortunately, we can stop this infection with appropriate definitive treatment. We gently remove the bacteria (plaque and calculus) surrounding the teeth which is causing the infection. The process is not uncomfortable and very effective. Remember they are your teeth...you can keep them...healthy and clean.
